Thank you do much

Clever fusion of 3D printed parts and metal nodes

The Aluminium parts come really well machined and packaged. With a good 3d printing of the frame parts the final assembly is flawless with perfect tollerance between parts. With less parts to transport to the owners this could be an interesting path for the future. When the 3d printer will be able to make also the metal parts the circle will close.

Tilt head for close up photogammetry

Printed the parts at 100% fill and high quality and the finished product looks and functions very well. Hardware supplied in good time and was of excellent quality. Recommend a change to one of the parts which adds a holder for the Allen key. STL file can be found in Thingiverse, search "Edelkrone FlexTilt 3D Magnetic Allen key”. 2 x 5mm diameter magnets needed.

great tool, cool concept to 3D the parts.

Directions were good, device feels solid, have a lot of joy at printing pieces myself.

FlexTILT Head 3D

The quality of the parts sent to me is exceptional. I haven't print the remaining parts yet because I'm still waiting for my 3D printer.

Flex Tilt Head 3D

I recently tested this out in our scanning lab and it has worked really well so far. We'll see how it holds up over time. It held my DSLR and various lenses with no problem. However, I wish it was a bit easier to adjust instead of relying on the allen wrench provided. Perhaps a future design could consist of adjustment knobs.

I read and watched a number of reviews before ordering this. The price, with shipping seemed a little high for the few parts that were shipped. I was wrong. The quality of the parts was outstanding. Once I considered the obvious time and care in developing the 3D printed parts .The price is a real bargain. I printed mine at %90 infill using PLA. I was extremely impressed with the design. I have not experienced any of the weakness I read an heard about in the reviews. I hope you have more products in development.

2nd one....every bit as excellent as the first one.

I purchased the 3D print kit and the files I printed came out perfectly. I like the construction so much I purchased the company....not really. I purchased another tilt head. They are absolutely perfect for a web cam when you are doing zoom meetings. They are stable, you can point them any place and they stay. They are perfect for showing products you want to demonstrate. I love mine!!! So much so that I purchased another. There was a shipping goof up on my first one, and the company was quick to correct the problem, absolutely professional and well done. Thank to the gang at edelkrone.

awesome product and co-mfg concept

This was lots of fun to print and assemble. All of the parts fit together perfectly. Thanks so much for encouraging co-manufacturing to get this into my hands.

I shouldn't waist my $ with this Plastic thing

Assembly was easy but I would rather have a real one!

I’ll just buy the product built next time

$60 and missing screws and frustration! I’m only mad at buying a 3D kit.. i will buy the real thing from here on out.

nice product but not greate as hoped for

printing was simple, delivery of other parts was fast. problem is it is very wobbly, the screws are very easy to open by the weight of the camera & lens (BMPCC 6K + Sigma 18-35 Art, total of 3.8 lb) and makes it unstable and dangerous to use because it can flip in a second. also it does not allow to set a pose and have a steady shot, the friction can't hold it. in the specs it says Max. load up to 5.5 lb. 3.8 its not that close to the limit, so it is very annoying. i would not recommend this item for setups over 2.5 lb, which is higer than most professional camera-lens setups. maybe the regular (Aluminium) version is better, i can't tell.

3D Printed FlexTilt Head 3D

The FlexTILT Head 3D was a great product to print and use! I have to say that Edelkrone is revolutionary in this 3D printing process. No other company that I have seen allows you to 3D parts like this. I myself am an engineer, and this product taught me how to 3D print which was really neat. In the field, this product performed extremely well. I would definitely recommend printing in white PLA. Looks very sharp and is well contrasted with the black parts.

Flex tilt print

I used an I Mega 3 and the print went well. There were a couple of pieces that were a tight fit for the metal end caps....I am sure it is printer variation, but it was so close that a very tiny increase in the dimensions by make it easier to print for others. It looks like it will be fairly sturdy, If teflon washers would work instead of the delrin like ones it would be a good substitution. Charge 1 or 2 dollars more. It should make the adjustment a little smoother. Overall its a great concept, I would consider building more of these print it yourself kits. Something that might work well would be a manual slider, with an option to upgrade to motorized.

3D print with excellent components

It works very well and is solid. I did print the parts in PetG since I don't want any chance of it getting soft if left in the sun. The design of the 3d printed parts is very good and tolerances are perfect! One thought might be to offer a version that can be annealed. The parts would need to be modified slightly since annealing would cause dimension changes in x, y or z. But it would make them much stronger and when PLA is annealed it handles high tempratures as well.

Almost perfect, but not quite.

All of the metal (ordered) parts fit perfectly. Unfortunately, the printed parts were off by 2mm in the Z direction across the board. My printed parts matched the size perfectly according to my caliper. So I redesigned the base (smaller), the center 2 parts (larger) and then added another user's magnetic design (modified to have 3 magnets). Here is the Thingiverse link.
